As I recently joined forum, I looked here and thought of Osipi mentioning to me in different thread I should look around the different topics This is a wonderful site chock full history. Many thanks to gogm for directing to the photo albums. Late last night I thought I’d take a peek. Three hours later I retired. As you see I’m here again. It’s absolutely fascinating to see the history and I so enjoy the family resemblances it’s uncanny. Oh to be a fly on the wall at BP and hear the opinions of our beloved RF as they look at their photos.

I know I'm off topic on this thread, but I've always been intrigued by the un-Mountbatten/Windsor-like looks of Prince Andrew. (I'm not hinting at anything unsavoury in that observation, by the way.)

Except for the Mountbatten choppers he looks nothing like Prince Philip, and very little like his mother either. It was said when he was young that Andrew looked like the young George V, (before the beard, obviously,) and I've noticed a bit of a resemblance, but really Andrew doesn't look like his parents or any of his siblings. Maybe there's a Bowes Lyon throwback in looks as Eugenie is said to resemble the QM?

Continuing the OT: imo indeed P.Andrew takes after the Bowes-Lyon family, for me from the eyes down he resembles f.i. David Bowes-Lyon brother of QEQM
https://i.pinimg.com/originals/a3/c2...c407118779.jpg
Forehead and hair imo from P.Philip's side of the family
Imo in the next generation Peter Philips resembles hus uncle Andrew a bit (and imo P.William resembles Peter Philips in a way)

They all don't have the distictive Q.Mary features that for instance QEII, P.Anne, Louise Wessex and P.Mary (countess of Harewood) share

ok, i'll stop the OT now

I don't see any resemblance between Eugeine and the queen Mum.. she has a look of Fergie, but heavier and darker.
True that Andy Does look oddly "out of palce" in his family, he does not have the standard Windsor looks.. or his father's good looks...

Eugenie's smile is quite a bit like her mother's and she often smiles quite broadly, making it a little harder to see the similarities to her great-grandmother, but in photos where her mouth is closed or the expression on her face is more neutral, Eugenie looks very much like QM.

Andrew's eyes remind me of his great-grandmother, Queen Alexandra.

Princess Beatrice is a near dead-ringer for the young Queen Victoria - who had auburn hair as a young woman. Beatrice's features are quite Hanoverian, especially her eyes.

Queen Mary's genes seem to have been quite dominant. So much of what we consider the "Windsor look" in the current BRF is really a resemblance to May.

Andrew looks very much like Queen Mary. Anyone that compares pics would know there wouldn't even be DNA testing required.

I don't see a resemblance to Q Mary, who was distinguished looking, if not pretty. But who is the stable man ?

I believe that reference is to Henry George Reginald Molyneux Herbert, 7th Earl of Carnarvon KCVO KBE DL, Lord Porchester (Porchie) who was a very close friend of the Queen's and also her racing manager. These two friends were at their very best when they put their heads together to talk horses and racing and all that goes with it.

Some people assumed that the Queen had an affair with him that resulted in Andrew's birth. There really is no substance to that rumor. They remained close friends until his death in 2001. The Queen attended his funeral. Something she rarely does.

I always thought Andrew took after the Bowes Lyon branch of the family. Eugenie resembles Andrew and she looks very much like the Queen Mother as a young woman.

I see a lot of Queen Mary (when she was younger) in Anne and Zara, and when she was older, the Queen resembles her grandmother.
